Hello! Today I am sharing 2 cards for Hanukkah. I have a really, really old wood-mounted stamp of a menorah, that has really fun doodles in it. I wanted to leave it uncolored, and have an impactful background. I used the awesome Kaleidoscope 3D Embossing Folder from Tim Holtz and Sizzix to get the look I wanted.

I first used the embossing folder on foiled gold cardstock that I had gotten from Michaels. The texture and varying dimension you can get from that folder is amazing! I thought it worked really well with the menorah, which I stamped in Twilight VersaFine Clair Ink from Imagine. I colored the flames with Zigs. I used blue cardstock as a mat behind the menorah and I inked the edges of my card base with Twilight Ink.
In the same cardstock pack as the gold, there was also a slivery blue. I thought it would work for this card also, so I repeated the same process, with that color. I like how this version came out too.
I really love the shine on those foiled cardstocks!
These cards can be reproduced very quickly because there’s almost no coloring involved. The look like they took a while because of the the embossed background, but that part only takes a few seconds. I really like how these came out, and I am happy I got to use one of my very old stamps too. Thanks so much for stopping by. Have an inspiring day!
